    Your composition, subject, and focus are all really good. It looks a bit overexposed (notice the lack of detail in bottom left hand corner). Its not bad how it is but in the future think about tuning down the exposure a bit and it might also help give your photo a moodier feel. Also, on this photo, you might want to bump up contrast a tad.

    The brightness on the swam could do with being upped a little. Also, when taking shots like this, try to look at the subject at eye level. If you had done so here you would have had a nice clean OOF area in the background, however here it looks like you were looking down at an angle, and as a result the background water has caused a distracting OOF area. Looking at eye level would have made the far shore the OOF background as apposed to the water.

    It makes a huge difference pointing having the camera flat and level with your subject as apposed to looking down (even slightly!). Try it next time and see what you think :)
